1. Just a reminder: One hundred and ninety-three House Republicans voted against capping the price of insulin at $35 a month.

    1. @Shifty McGee462 thereโ€™s that conservative thinking we all love โค๏ธ ๐Ÿ’€

    2. @Terrence Kane “I will make insulin so cheap it will be like water” – Donald Trump 2020 after signing to cap insulin at 35$

    1. Spoken like someone who has never been tortured under political circimstances (POW’s, Bucha civilians). The average person will break after a fixed amount of time when subjected to extreme pain, physical or mental.

    1. @A WPetersen I think he took shrooms and read Revelations 6,12. I imagine this is just another Troll.

  2. This report makes me nervous: is the West setting us up in readiness to go back to business as usual with Russia by saying, “Well, Putin isn’t to blame for what happened in Ukraine”.

    1. No. While there are of course serious concerns about how long certain sanctions can or will be held, no one is going to say Putin is somehow not responsible for decisions he made. The reason for the release of intelligence reports are most likely psychological. To signal that it is known that things aren’t exactly according to plan, etc.

  3. “They are using intelligence as a weapon”
    Well, that’s the one weapon Russia apparently forgot onroad to Ukraine. They also didn’t stock up much on basic competence either.

    1. @Joboygbp Edwards ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

      Well that’s because you wanted democracy … and that’s democracy for you.

      A sort of “be careful what you wish for” thing.

    2. @Ross Kneebone Democracy not Communism. This is not who or what 74 million people voted for.

    3. @Joboygbp Edwards

      Tell us, did you attend school?

      Is this the best you can do?

      Have another go.

  4. Thats how authoritarian systems work. No trust from top to bottom nor bottom to top. This causes lack of communication and lack of improvisation mentality.

  5. Sadly Putins popularity rating in Russia has reached 89%.
    Mind you if they asked me if I supported him I guess I would reply yes, or fear being dragged off to a labour camp ๐Ÿ˜ข

    1. @ะฎะปะธั ะœะฐั€ั‡ะตะฝะบะพ There was no genocide in Donbas. Ukraine was not targetting ethnic Russians in Donbas. There were protests against the Russian president in 2014. He left and a pro-west party took power. Ukrainians in the Donbas felt that they had no say and that they were betrayed since they felt more Russian than Ukrainian. They seceded and formed their own states. Ukraine went in to put the rebellion down, but Russian troops went in and intervened.

    2. @Ross Kneebone Only 1500, that’s a relief! And then half of that number won’t get out of the silos due to poor maintenance over the years and that leaves us with about 700-800! We can ,handle that before we melt!

  6. โค๏ธ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿฅ‡SLAVA UKRAINI!
    Rare people sees the lie… Come on, of course puthler has access to all internet sources and he has eyes and ears everywhere ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

    1. Looks like he could have watched the movie about the orange revolution…he would have learned that the ukranians are Tough.

  7. About 5,000 SwitchBlades ( 300s and 600s ) would help compensate for less of the heavy weapons. They only need to take out Russian artillery and rockets and tanks. Invading Russian grounds troops wont stand a chance without those assets to help them. There aren’t likely more than say 2,000 of those heavy Russian assets in Ukraine. It’s a no brainer.

  8. I hope his generalโ€™s tell him only what he wants to hear! Please donโ€™t change lol.

  9. The highest paying job in Russia right now is that of a food taster for Putin. Keep in mind too, polls in Russia give you the choice of: (a) do you support Putin and the war in the Ukraine, or (b) would you prefer spending 15 years in jail?

  10. Feel bad for the the person who eventually has to inform Putin. โ€œPutin, we have to talk, your 150K troops are gone.โ€

    1. @ะฎะปะธั ะœะฐั€ั‡ะตะฝะบะพ you poor poor darling. Iโ€™m sorry for you.

  11. Be it Trump or Putin, when a โ€œleaderโ€ is surrounded by self-appointed sycophants how could the advice not be reduced to pandering?

    1. Exactly! Well said. Every leader gets to choose between appointing and encouraging competence and honesty on the one hand, or loyalty and yes-people on the other.

    2. @Dr Edwin Kemp I bet youโ€™re one of those who used to say have respect for the President or feel free to leave the country. Even if you disagree with the current President why do you feel the need to be rude? Get involved and vote him out but letโ€™s have some civility back and talk to each other rather than be ugly.

  12. It’s interesting that the CIA officer mentions mothers’ (individualist) reactions upon the return of the bodies of soldiers deceased in war. What will mothers say about their sons being honored for having fought for Russian sovereignty over its protectorate remains to be seen.

  13. He’s not being misled. He delights in hearing about all the rapes and civilian executions going on.

  14. Do we really think that a serial killer, mass murderer who has been committing these crimes for decades and managed to remain free, is that stupid? I’ll go so far as to say that the very second he sees a Russian mega yacht, he knows where the money came from. Mainly because he knows where his came from.
